My Ride: 2004 325ci
status gruppe coils vs AST 4100

hey guys,
im pretty new to the site and for a while have been reading reviews on many different types of coils for my 2004 e46 325ci. im starting to get into the occasional weekend autoX events and decided its finally time for some coils and seats. Ive narrowed it down to the stats gruppe coils and the AST 4100s. obviously the ASTs are a bit pricier but from what ive read the quality and handling is worth it. I have also read many good things on status gruppe as well and they are a little less pricey. I just installed a csl bumper and because it had to be modified to fit a non M (though turner said it would fit my car) its a little less durable with the carbon fiber lips, so I don't want a huge drop either so I cant get up my own driveway, but enough to get rid of the wheel gap and lower the center of gravity a fair amount. if you guys have any other recommendations on coils let me know! thanks!

I've heard good things about BC-Racing Coilovers. Might want to look that up as well.

OP, if you're really wanting to track your Bimmer, I don't believe Status G. should be in this conversation.

The AST 4100's are a very solid choice, another solid choice would come from Ground Control.


Good luck,
